A collective set up for victims of the natural disaster - Despite the recognition of a state of natural disaster, after the bad weather in the region in November last year, it’s been reported that disaster victims "cannot be reimbursed for the damage".
The situation has led to one resident in Drap starting a “collective”. Since the beginning of the month, the 64-year-old retired health executive has been attempting to bring the situation to the authorities attention. A problem facing many residents.
